Award winning hair and makeup artist, Claudine Fay, has been a business owner and licensed cosmetologist for over 10 years. She is especially known for her soft, romantic, perfectly-imperfect hairstyles and natural makeup; the kind that showcases YOU, and the beauty within. Claudine’s loyal following sets her high in demand. As a daughter of two master stylists and D.C. salon owners, Claudine’s love for hair styling began as young girl. After graduating from Virginia Tech with a Bachelor Degree in Clothing & Textiles and Merchandising Management, Claudine worked for Nordstrom for 8 years. As the Store Administrator for the last 6 of those years, Claudine learned the invaluable importance of customer service. After officially launching her business in 2012, Hair & Makeup by Claudine was quickly welcomed by the industry’s top vendors.
Claudine was most recently awarded Top Vote Getter, Editor’s Pick, One to Watch and Rising Star by Washingtonian Weddings Magazine. Her bride’s have graced the covers of Washingtonian Life and Washingtonian Weddings.
